The River Bride by Marisela Treviño Orta
American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) - Master of Fine Arts Program
Sky Festival - January 2017
A.C.T.'s annual Sky Festival in the M.F.A. program challenges its artists over a 3-week period to put together hour-long versions of plays and new works. I directed a cast of 6 M.F.A. acting students in the mythic Brazilian folktale about two sisters, a wedding, and a magical dolphin who transforms into a man looking for true love. This was staged in a rehearsal studio that we transformed into an abstract Amazon rainforest with windchimes, LED strip lights, and rehearsal platforms.
